A 1964 documentary on the pros and cons of new suburban living made for the NET television network.
We're joined in the proceedings by a sociologist who squints at cue cards and has the world's worst posture. Perhaps he's thinking more about taking a drag from that cigarette than what he's reading.
The music at the 12-minute mark is ZR-43C WALTZ UNDERSCORE by Geordie Hormel.
Note the newspaper headlines toward the end of the documentary. "Racial Bias Costs Taxpayers Big Sums." Come to think of it, the suburb depicted IS awfully white, isn't it?
The NET house ID at the end is a nice bonus.
In all, an interesting time capsule.

Interesting examination into the pros and cons of moving out into a new suburb. The mini municipality of Wheeling, Illinois is examined. I found it interesting that a film like this would examine both sides of the fence, it just makes me wonder who this film was made for. This is certainly not a sales film.
